this morning. a little bit of a breeze, too, but skies are clear. the only showers we have is in extreme northern portions of vermont and maine. but even there, a nice day today. temperatures will be about 83 in d.c., by far the warmest. everybody else in the 70s and just a nice crisp afternoon. a good day to eat your lunch out doors. buffalo cooler at 65. we also have some big thunderstorms in kansas. as far as the weather goes in our country, this is probably the worst of it today. this will head towards kansas city this afternoon. some big storming rolling out there. so the forecast for today, the only travel trouble spots if you're flying would be kansas city up into minneapolis. chicago looks nice today. it's hot in dallas. in san antonio and houston, you can't catch a break this summer. still temperatures in the mid-90s today. it's pretty hot down there from new orleans all through florida, also. but, lynn, the tropics, very active. the rest of the country kind of quiet. >> bill, thanks.
